viewer, right? >> it's a little more complicated, but so much money has been lost betting interest rates, traditional methods of shorting bond futures, shorting rates, that it makes sense to look at small strategy ta gives you a lot of staying power. >> wa about converts or junk? >> yeah, high yield. >> interesting with interest rates going up, doesn't necessarily mean junk yields would go up. you would think if interest rates are going up, ultimately, it's been corroborate with a strong economy which tends to be a good environment for higher yield debt as the stronger economy would still translate to lower defaults and better credit in general. so i wouldn't say that betting on higher corporate yields, particularly higher junk or high yield rates is the best way to bet on interest rates. >> what could we look for for a total return for the next couple of years if we did everything right? >> on the upon side? >> yeah. >> you're still probably looking for total returns in the mid single digits, which would include a coupon that you're getting. >> you think equities could be okay, though?
-spangled banner. he said it was the bet i had ever heard it performed. i said that she proved that you can sing the star-spangled banner after all. maybe i have been wrong to say nobody could sing it and that she, you know, gave it new life and new meaning and then i hear the news she was faking it. a spokesperson for the marine band admitted they got word at the last minute they had it pre prerecorded and they got word at the last minute that she was going to use the prerecorded version, not the real version. i have to say, here is what it sounded like. it sounds pretty good. ♪ 0, say, can you see by the dawn's early light, what so proudly we hail did he twilight's last gleaming. >> now do i feel like a total schmuck? like a total idiot? i feel like actually i have been betrayed. i don't know about you. 866-65 press. this is a big deal for me. the problem is never as good as you think they are. as they seem. look at david individualder or others, you know. things are never what really they appear to be. i don't know. i believe and peter and i were up so
of time to get a lead candidate, but they may have multiple lead candidates. and betting on the right one to go through the process is critical. it's a really big responsibility we have. we take it seriously. we enjoy the work, it's quite complex. but the drug companies have really honed down their pipelines. and as i said a moment ago, use smaller biotech companies as their discovery engines. and i think that's one of the reasons we saw more drugs be approved by the fda in 2012 than the prior year because they're much more focused than they used to be. the indications are much harder, the mechanism of action of the diseases is much more complicated. they're really honing in on the drugs that have the best potential to get to market. >> i think you save the system a lot of money. at the same time you do have government business. the government is trying to figure out what they should cut back. there's a lot of shortsighted things that would be cut back if we just went over the usual cliff. are you concerned about the government side of your business because it seems washington's run amuck

, the short sellers continue to target them. we see a lot of bashish bets from option speculators, and analysts have not bought into it. we don't want to focus on low prices, but low expectations, and we think those are two sectors for 2013. liz: housing still have gas? they had a beautiful runup for the derivative plays on this. >> they have, but i think on the shorter term of the past 52 weeks, they look overbought. looking back and look at a longer term chart, most of those are still about half of their all-time high. you couple that with the fact, like i said, there's a lot of skepticism towards housing, a lot of people like you said mentioned too far, too fast. we think when there's doubt on the sidelines that represents a lot of money that has yet to be put to work. you talk about the inflows into equity funds this week, we think, perhaps, that could be the start of the acceptance phase where money comes in and pushes prices higher. david: sticking with joe, michael, have not forgot about you but i mentioned netflix earlier on, and, i know, joe, you're a fan of netflix, but
geithner is that he -- you would not, if you were in the betting market at the beginning of the obama first term, wount stha guy is going to be the guy who makes economic policy, this guy is going to be influential and go in the history books as one of america's most influential and important for better or ill treasury secretaries because he got a really bad start to the job. he stumbled out of the gate. he gave press conference that's were panned. he was not particularly close to barack obama. yet he managed to have by all accounts across the spectrum, tremendous influence and as someone who worked with him and sat across tables with him, neil, how did he pull that off? >> i think he has a sense of president obama. and i think they connected on a personal level. and he somehow earned the president's trust. but i think when you look at what he's done, it is a remarkable thing. most of the policies that he engineers or did in response to financial crisis were failed policies. and i think, you know, part of his legacy going to be what we're going to have to deal with in the coming years as a

boehner is doing with this proposal on pay, overwhelmingly i bet the american people support the notion. they can't get paid if they don't do their job. will harry reid and mitch mcconnell, will they actually feel either based on the efforts of the house or what the president does, will they feel like hey, we need to listen to what the country wants. there's still populism out there particularly with the economy bad and feeling washington needs to get its act together. >> joe? >> yeah. >> that asks -- that leads me to ask, you know, the group, what happens if within the white house, off of what mark just said, because this will be increasingly popular if the republicans continue to do things like this, what happens if the white house decides to try and pick off specific members of the republican membership in the house and perhaps some republicans in the senate and basically say people like you more now if you come and try and meet us halfway. what happens to this whole ball game if that occurs? >> i actually think the ball game is changing. the front of "the washington post" says that
, america always rises to the occasion. america prevails, and america prosperous. [applause] those who bet against this country have inevitably been on the wrong side of history. so it is a good moment to pull the statue of freedom at the top of the capitol dome. it is a good moment to gain strength and courage and humility from those who are determined to complete the half finished dome. it is a good moment to rejoice today at this 57th presidential inaugural ceremony, and it is the perfect moment to renew our collective faith in the future of america.
